Pros: Excellent image quality, not too heavy files, low noise, excellent ergonomics.

Cons: AF points a little too central (and not many if you don't have optics that enable AF-D), AF sometimes not very fast.

Opinion: Taken three years ago (I also have an A850), I'm really happy about it. For what I do (print up to 30*45, photo books) the 24 MP is enough and do not send the old Minolta designed that I own into crisis. The files can be easily processed even by a zozzone of postproduction like me, and, thanks to the SLT system, to expose badly you really have to commit yourself.

Pros: Almost everything - it's a very good FF -

Cons: AF not very fast

Opinion: I had this camera which I then replaced with one of the second series. Improved in many things, but with heavier files" (40 mp !) and no GPS (for those who travel is very useful). Then in truth Sony decided to abandon this system by focusing everything on mirrorless !!! This means that it has stopped any development and production of optics. Today you can find the A99 used at good prices.

Pros: Definitely good files, quite low noise even at the high ISO, very manageable. Almost intuitive for those who have already used other Sonys. Very useful articulated shermo, light and robust. It doesn't make you regret cameras with multiple megapixels. Found in the used at very affordable prices.

Cons: I have not found any flaws but, with all the very useful functions it offers (good thing), it requires a long and careful reading of the manual. The hubs of the screen, all made of plastic, portede for their likely non-infinite life.

Opinion: I'm the owner of Sony A 900 and 850 but the recurrences of a brain accident made me very uncomfortable to get close to the scope of these to embrace the framed field while I found myself well, in doing so, with the back screen of my wife's Sony A 57 which is not a FF camera. So, given the need for an FF with the ability to frame with a comfortable screen, I met almost randomly the A 99 who had all the right cards to meet me. Researching I also found the newest A 99 II and I was ready to buy it when I was presented with a great opportunity for a well-maintained and cheap "normal" A 99. The savings were considerable and what I would not have spent would remain available for some optics... I am very happy, the sacrosanct screen has made me return to the world of photography in its own right making me overcome my difficulties!! Since I was already satisfied with the 24 megapixels of my other cameras, and since I don't print in poster format, I don't think I'm going to regret the 40 megapixels of the 99 II. Being used to the two "old ladies" I was amazed by the reduced noise of the 99 even at the high ISO. That is, the 3200 ISO of the 99 introduces much less noise than the 800 ISO of the A 900 - 850. It's very good to take pictures or movies with my microscope and I've already successfully tested it on lunar and planetary photos with my telescope. From the beginning, the fingers found the right keys almost automatically as for an already Sonysta this camera is practically intuitive. The weight is not very heavy and grips feelings of safety and great robustness. I gave her the 10 grade without a doubt and I would recommend it from the heart to all! Last thing: it is not possible to use with this USB cables of the A 900 - 850 but it is compatible with that of the A 57 which has a minor plug.

Pros: Very workable files, great ergonomics, adjustable screen, tropicalization, high ISO resistance

Cons: Lacks the WiFi, no flash, AF now no longer topical (but CMQ excellent)

Opinion: My first experience with full frame, after many years with a700 and a year with a 77.2 (which is newer than A99), after some initial hesitation I can say I did well to make this leap. In the transition from a 77.2 to A99 I had to pay several Scotti: Greater machine weight and lenses, higher costs than the latter, AF less evolved, no wifi. But as far as my photographic needs are concerned the pros beat the Cons: The full frame sensor acquires more workable files, especially in the recovery of shadows, cleaner at high ISO and more balanced in colors. For those who like me do so much portraiture both outdoors and indoors, natural or artificial light, optimal lighting or dim, is the manna from heaven. Not very intuitive the menu, but the physical commands are always excellently arranged and with a few clicks you set everything according to your needs. Very comfortable the ring nut for the selection between auto Fire and manual. Priceless the hybrid focus, as well as the preview of how the shot will be. The 24 mpx are more than enough, more crowding would give only annoyance, also allows the use with all the old Minolta lenses even those non-G series or digital (between here the grandiose series Beercan) that would be difficult with the 36 mpx and beyond So many other full frames. Find his ideal partner in the Zeiss 24 70 2.8, but I recommend to try also with little expense the Minolta 28 135, 35 70 and 28 2.8, over 50ini: You'll love. I have also paired the old but still fantastic Sigma 50 and 85 ex HSM, and I'm very happy with it. Also I found considerable benefit with the use of the battery grip, allows you to have mounted three batteries together and improves the already excellent ergonomics (especially if you like me do many vertical shots).

Pros: Performance, High Quality, Very Malleable Files ... etc

Cons: Distribution of AF points.

Opinion: Taken used, I'm really okay. Few uncertainties in the AF and passing from 28 to 75 sam at the Zeiss 24-70 disappeared altogether. Strong handling, convenient the swivel screen such as the A77 I and II, allowing you to make shots from the top and the side without making mortal jumps (I've often used it for architectural photos by putting the screen over and turned sideways so that the machine is resting on the wall of the room and use all the available meters to shoot as wide a frame as possible). Commands are well-distributed and easy to reach. To me great.
